  1. manual tagging should override auto-tags

    Currently, the manual tag will be copied over to auto-tag (by setting), and count in the timesheet, but it will also count the auto-tag, which cannot be removed. This in turn leads to potentially more than 24 hours per day on the timesheet, which is quite wrong.

    Auto-tag should be automatically overridden by manual tag, or at least be removable individually.

  2. Improvement of Help

    It would be great to find all features of ManicTime in the help ages/knowledgebase. Today I searched for the description of "Pomodoro" amd "Timer". I entered it in the "Search"-field but
    I found no reasonable description of the functionality among the proposed pages. It wasn't until I did a search in the Internet browser that I was shown a page listing new features for an older version of the program. There the functionality was described. Can't you extend your help pages directly with such things?

  3. Save and show screenshots for google chrome

    I can see screenshots for many apps but nothing for google chrome. I would like to see a screenshot of what I was browsing. At least I wish I'd have the full link to those pages.

    Android version now supports:
    -Tags / Stopwatch
    -Phone call tracking
    -Phone usage (including application tracking)
    -Location tracking (similar to now discontinued Moves app)

    I think that covers most of the suggestions in this thread, so I suggest new requests are opened for more specific features.

  5. on/off the record button

    Once you go "off the record" there is a button that appears to start tracking again on the desktop version. This function would be AWESOME to have all of the time. One click to go off the record, one click to go back on the record - instead of having to go to the notification area of the task bar to go "off the record"

  7. Brave Browser

    I just switched to using the Brave Browser because Google Chrome is a resource hog. Brave doesn't show any screenshots in the Professional version of ManicTime.

  9. Add 'Remember selection' option in the dialog 'New tags conflict with existing tags'

    If during the day I copy the autotags to tags multiple times, this dialog pops up and I need to select 'Fill only untagged time'.

    It would be great if the dialog had a checkbox called 'Do not ask again' or something similar which remembers the selected option so next time it automatically picks it.

    Thanks,
    Cosmin

  10. Timesheet - Month Report Group by Week or add a Week hours total.

    When looking at the TimeSheet month date range, I would like to have the weekly work hours shown as a total by either grouping them by week or then add a sum that totals all weekly hours used by tag.

  11. Store "Only billable" option value with saved Timesheet report

    I love the saved Timesheet reports and use them a lot. Once thing I noticed is that when you save a Timesheet with a name, all the criteria is saved - except the "Only billable" option. I have a specific report ("Billable - Last Week") which I use to create invoices for clients, but whenever I open it, I have to click the "Only billable" checkbox, since the fact that it is selected is not stored with the other report criteria.

    Similarly, if I then load a different saved Timesheet, which has "Only billable" unchecked, it is showing that it…

  13. Would be great to see a Docker image of the Server

    Would be excellent to be able to spin up a container of the Server without going through some of the other configuration issues. Also if you ported it to .net Core, you could make the server run on Linux pretty easily. Would love to help you with this.

  14. Add hyperlink: click date in timesheet to take you to the day

    Thank you for allowing us to request features and vote on them.

    My request: When we generate timesheet reports, we may have neglected to enter enough notes for billing or would like to see what else we worked on that day to make sure it was properly tagged. If the date or column was hyperlinked to take us back to the Day tab and to the specific day in question, it would save us the time of having to remember and locate the day.

    Thank you.

  15. minimum amount of time before recording

    I'd like to change the minimum amount of time that the application starts recording at. It is currently set at 5 seconds before it records, but id like to change it to 10 seconds before it records.

  16. Advanced Search - Remain Open Option

    The 'Advanced Search' Window should have the option for it to remain open after you select an item it found.

    This would be useful when you are exploring your timeline - looking for a specific event, and are trying to isolate it from a number of search results.

    Currently the window closes and you have to reopen, restart the search and find your context all over again.

  17. Saving filter / search request

    It would be nice to be able to save filters (or searches, or finds, or whatever you call the box when you Ctrl-F) WITHOUT saving them as an AutoTag.

    As far as I can tell, this isn't something that you can do right now on the desktop version.

    If I write a complex search string (or even not that complex, but hard to remember) that I expect to use again, the only thing I can do is save it as a text file and copy and paste it back when I next need it.

    Thanks

  19. Disable saveing thumbnails of screenshots

    At me, thumbnails need about 40-50 percent of diskspace.
    So it should be possible to disable generation of thumbnails.

    And MaincTime should ignore missing thumbnails (*_thumbnail.jpg)
    If I delete thumbnails manualy, many exceptions in errors.log generated

    2017-06-23 01:48:19.751 E 2624 9 35543166 Exception {"errorType":"System.IO.FileNotFoundException","message":"Die Datei \"C:\\Users\\my_username\\AppData\\Local\\Finkit\\ManicTime\\Screenshots\\2016-11-11\\2016-11-11_00-13-03_thumbnail.jpg\" konnte nicht gefunden werden.","stackTrace":" bei System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)\r\n bei System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length()\r\n bei Finkit.ManicTime.Common.Plugins.Timelines.Screenshots.CaptureFile.GetFileSize(String filePath)","data":{}}

    And ManicTime Tracker needs alot of cpu load.

  20. Disable password popup after coming back from away

    I'd like to disable the password protection popup after becoming active from away. Reason: In a company environment, the program can be used in a rogue-like fashion. Currently the password protection popup prevents the program from truly being hidden.
